Filmmaker Michael Moore visits a host of nations to learn how the U.S. could improve its own prospects and discovers that the solutions to America’s most entrenched problems already existed in the world – they’re just waiting to be co-opted. (R – 110 minutes)
If ever there was a movie that made you want to live in another country – any other country than America – then “Where to Invade Next” would be it. Michael Moore’s new documentary demonstrates with the filmmaker’s trademark wit that those in other countries lead far better lives than we do. Witnessing their health, wealth and happiness will undoubtedly make most moviegoers as envious as they are entertained. In addition to shining a spotlight on the good old U-S-of-A’s deficiencies in such as way that makes us simultaneously laugh and think, Moore presents several solutions to improve what we naively believed was the best country in the world.
